Update on Global Grant with Westville Rotary Club, S. Africa

Westville Rotary logoGood afternoon,

You may recall that under John Albrecht’s presidency, our club participated in a Global Grant with Westville Rotary Club, South Africa.  We submitted $5,000 March 2015.  Two other clubs participated and the District matched with $5000.  The monies were used in various ways in nursery schools.

Currently, the project is making toys from waste materials.      During the course of this year they are scheduled to run seven courses, teaching the caregivers to make toys that are suitable for the stimulation of fine motor skills and gross motor skills in the E.C.D.   Westville Rotarians are collecting the waste materials.

Although these toys are primitive, this project will make a huge difference in the lives of these children.  And our Club was a major sponsor!

Yours in Rotary service,


East Cooper Breakfast Rotary Club
